Why exercise is essential to weight loss?

How Exercising Increases Calorie Expenditure

Exercise works in two different ways.

There are two basic types of exercise: aerobic and anaerobic.

  1. Aerobic exercise refers to physical workouts that require oxygen to be delivered to the muscles. These include walking, jogging, swimming, jumping rope, roller-blading, rowing, football and tennis. Aerobic training is often called "cardio" exercise because it strengthens the cardiovascular (heart) and respiratory (lungs) systems. This form of exercise provides the best way to burn calories during exercise.

  2. Anaerobic exercise refers to fitness routines (eg. lifting weights) that don't rely on oxygen for fuel. This type of exercise is often referred to as resistance training and is good for increasing muscle bulk, hence providing for a sustained increase in metabolic rate.
    It can be seen that both forms of exercise are important in a long-term weight loss program.

How much exercise is enough?
Ideally, and as a general guide, 30 minutes of moderately strenuous exercise at least five days a week is recommended. For most people this equates to a brisk walk during which one should still be able to conduct a conversation.
